Double Dog Double Pale Ale Back by popular demand, our original "Wild Dog Release" is back, and this time itís for good. Double Dog Double Pale Ale is a generously hopped ale with a deep red color and pours with a nice frothy head. The abundance of hops will conjure some provocative aromas with hints of raisins and citrus.

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2007 I could smell the hops from the minute I unlodged the cork (and I do mean unlodge since it required a corkscrew). Dark golden and slightly hazy appearance. The smell is very promising. Hops are similar to 90 minute but more smoothed out by the malt. The malt is initially good in being able to carry the hop but then gets carried away and becomes cloyingly sweet. Each sip confirms this. Aroma and initial taste are good, but the sweetness on the finish is overdone. re-rate march í07 12oz bottle - much more balanced. Big hops and big sweet fruity malt. Well done.

bottle #94-shared with whaleman-thanks to my secret santa for sending this brew my way. pours a rich cpooer hue with a small off-white rocky head. resiny, piney sugary hop aroma. flavors were very hoppy-resiny and piney with a touch of sweetness. high bitterness. pretty straight forward but effective. easily the best FD beer so far. I wish they would make something like this as a regular. THis beer is kinda like double bastard with a dose more hops. a very nice ASA.

Copper body with a ruby tone and a thick and foamy off-white head. Very fresh, big hoppy nose with notes of grapefruit, mango, juniper and a fruity malt and crystal malt underbelly. Very hoppy, resinous flavor with lots of fresh evergreen qualities. Toasty malt background. This is a hop monster. Screams DIPA all the way. Whatever the style designation, Flying Dog hit the nail squarely on the head with this one.

750 ml corked and caged bottle pours a hazy glowing amber-copper with a thick creamy off-white head that leaves a nice lace in my glass. Fresh hoppy aroma of grapefruit and pine, resinous sticky pineapple and grapefruit flavors , has a full thick, sticky and slightly syrupy mouthfeel that finishes with a lingering hop bitterness, nice.

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2007 Iím usually not crazy for the Flying Dog brews, but this one stands out among their products. Big, hoppy, rich, almost vinous flavors. A nice burgundy color and a good head with lovely lace. Really their best Iíve had.

Bottle # 1981. Pours a hazy copper with a big creamy light tan head that retains well and laces the glass.

Its aroma is sweet and spicy malts with some pepper and some fruitiness (maybe pear or apple) and some candy like sugar and a small hint of floral hops. More of a barley wine aroma than a DIPA.

The flavor is sweet caramel and sugary malts with some melon fruitiness initially. It is followed by a strong hop bitterness that leaves a lingering oily aftertaste. There is a smoky alcohol present as well. The mouthfeel is smooth and medium bodied.

Overall, one of Flying Dogís better beers, but I thought the sweetness and bitterness was a little harsh and unbalanced; the sugary melon and hop bitterness just didnít blend well to me - it was tough to finish. I kept thinking of Youngís Old Nick as I drank this. I got it for $8.50 on sale, which is too pricey for me to get again.

caramel/golden color with a hint of red. aroma is initially piney hops, with a buttery aroma coming on quickly. nose may even be a bit vegetal. flavoris a nice mixture of piney hopsand moderately sticky caramel. flavor is medium to full-bodied with a subtle alcohol burn. iím really enjoying the pininess of this beer...itís not quite yulesmith or hog heaven pininess, but itís still pretty damn good.
